Laser Toning and Rejuvenation with AdvaTx
The 1319nm setting on the AdvaTx laser is used to target acne scars, active acne lesions, reduce oil, produce collagen, and rejuvenate the skin. Laser skin rejuvenation has become popular due to its minimal discomfort and quick recovery time.
What is it?
The laser skin toning and rejuvenation treatment with AdvaTx is a non-invasive procedure which uses light energy to effectively treat acne-scarred, sun-damaged, or aging skin. It promotes collagen production, reduces pore size, eliminates hyperpigmentation, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen production is important for creating a strong base for the skin. During the aging process, the body does not produce as much collagen and therefore causes fine lines and wrinkling of the skin. The AdvaTx laser has the ability to promote collagen growth which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Extensive exposure to the sun will cause skin discoloration, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. The AdvaTx laser toning and rejuvenation treatment has been proven to reduce pore size and acne scarring, and create a more youthful and even skin tone and texture.
Since this light therapy treatment only targets the inner layers of the skin, no downtime will be needed.
How Does it Work?
Laser skin rejuvenation is different from laser skin resurfacing in that it does not destroy the outer layers of the skin to create a fresh complexion. Skin rejuvenation uses light therapy to reach the lower layers of the skin and produce collagen.
Collagen will continue to build for months after treatment to gradually reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This light therapy will also target pigmentation by destroying dark spots which are later absorbed by the skin. This will result in a clearer, firmer, more even and healthy complexion.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Toning and Rejuvenation?
The AdvaTx laser can be used on all skin types. Patients who are seeking the following results are excellent candidates for this treatment:
- Reduction in pore size
- Firmer skin and more even complexion
- Elimination of irregular pigmentation
- Reduction in acne scarring
- Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
Which Areas can be Treated?
The AdvaTx laser can be used on more areas than the face, including the hands, neck, and chest.
What are the Side Effects Associated with this Treatment?
The AdvaTx laser is extremely safe and incurs minimal side effects due to the laser only treating the inner layers of the skin. Side effects may include only redness and minimal swelling which will subside within a few hours post-treatment.
What can I Expect During Treatment?
The treated area will be cleansed and protective goggles will be positioned over the eyes. A clear laser beam is aimed at the treatment area and reaches the dermis and issues heat to the area to produce collagen.
How Long does the Treatment Take?
Each session lasts about 45 minutes which includes treatment with two laser settings to target all redness, lesions, and scarring.
Is the Treatment Painful?
The AdvaTx laser incurs minimal discomfort even for those with a low pain tolerance. Patients have reported a warm and tingling sensation on the skin during treatment and it is therefore easily endured without the use of an anesthetic.
What can I Expect After Treatment?
Following the procedure, the treated area may be slightly red but this will subside within an hour. Patients can continue their daily schedule as there is no downtime associated with this treatment but it is recommended to avoid sun exposure as much as possible.
How Should I Prepare for Treatment?
Direct exposure to the sun should be avoided for two weeks prior to treatment. Discontinue using any retinol products at least three days before the procedure date.
When will I Notice Results?
Results are steady and subtle and will become more noticeable after each treatment session. Clearer, firmer, more even and youthful skin can be expected after the recommended six sessions. Maintenance treatments are advised every other month following the initial six sessions done every three weeks.
